There's Still Room For You
Author: Ben Laney


Go on Darlin'
hold him in your arms
And tell yourself
that you're safe and warm
But if it turns out
he's not all that he seems
There's still room for you
here inside my dreams

Be his lady
And say he's your man
Call him Baby
As long as you can
But should those pastures
ever lose their sheen
There's still room for you
here inside my dreams

All this love in me
hasn't gone away
I still want to be
close beside you someday
So please bear me in mind
if ever you're free
'Cause there's still room for you
here inside my dreams

------- Author's Notes -------

Dedicated to all those who have watched someone they love throw it all away and turn to some worthless, no good, coniving, &#%*@!#% !!

room eh?

LOL! Hey BL! Just the right dedication, for those who are in that predicament.... Letting them know, that you have all the room in the world, for them....

Some people do tend to mess up, when choosing someone else...
Great one!

Hey! I've definitely been here! One of my exes left me bc my cousin moved in on him while we were dating....if she could do that family i was convinced she would hurt him and i cared about him too much to see him get hurt...they're still together tho..amazingly.....guess i was wrong...but that was my view a while ago
